Lovely servers and staff, unique and delicious offerings, pricey, a bit too much deep fried food on the fixed menus

We came here earlier in the week to celebrate one of our daughter’s birthdays and had a really special evening. The staff were very welcoming and efficient, the food was delicious and the overall atmosphere in the restaurant was great. Will definitely come back.

Food is excellent, particularly the Thai curries. I was intrigued with the idea of a Thai wine, a Shiraz, and found it excellent. Service was terrific, hospitable and very charming. A full restaurant meant that ambient noise levels were very high, so difficult to hold a conversation. Otherwise, an excellent experience. Will go again.

Was rather disappointed in price versus quality. For the few dishes we had it was very expensive and not particularly amazing. Also despite being few people in the restaurant, the service was rather slow and as we were rushing to theatre we ended up not having much time to enjoy the food.

This was our second visit to Patara and this visit was as good as our first.
Food was excellent as was the service.
Can recommend the calamari and duck spring rolls and my green Thai curry was delicious. Will definitely be returning.

I have been going to Patara Soho for several years but this the first time the service has been bad. Our food came very late which was very disappointing. I am not sure I will go again as there too many good restaurants in London to choose from

We will be back! The staff were so lovely, from the manager to the waiters and hostess.
Food fresh, tasty and good value. The four of us had the pre theatre menu. The wine perfectly chilled. The ambience is calm and the lemongrass scent amazing. We shall try the al a carte menu next time.

We dine at Patara several times each year, every time we visit London. It was very surprising to be told certain menu items had run out, including Earl Grey tea. How can you run out of Earl Grey in a London restaurant?
Overall, we had another fantastic meal and will definitely return.

Me and my partner found the experience below average. We were waiting a very long time to be served and when we were eventually served, the waiter did not bring all our food. We were very disappointed with the whole experience and will not be going to this particular branch again.

Good food and service but found the final bill to be much higher than I would expect. We chose 3 dishes from the menu to share with no wine and paid well over the odds.

The experience was great and the staff were excellent and really made the visit enjoyable. The food was also very good although a little on the expensive side but that is expected for city dining.

I would highly recommend a visit!

Amazing food, good service although the level of English spoken by some of the waiters and waitresses was very poor. The manager did a fantastic job of stepping in where her staff were not able to communicate with us effectively

We had the Patara banquet for our Valentine’s lunch. We had a booking at 3pm and were slightly surprised that the venue was pretty much empty even though we booked for a late time. The ambience therefore was a little staid but not the fault of the staff who were excellent. The mixed starters were pleasant rather than outstanding with the fish cakes the stand out. The three main dishes were very good which were a combination of fried fish, chicken green curry and beef & ginger. The desert was just ok. Overall, a nice Restraunt serving good food.

Visited for our daughters 16th Birthday. Unfortunately we got a table pretty near the door and got gusts of chilled wind every time someone came in. Food was good but not outstanding (try Oli's Thai in Oxford). Service was friendly but a bit slow lacking. Main course took ages to come by which time the plates that we were told were too hot to touch were stone cold in the 15 minutes or so it took. I asked for hot plates again but they returned just as cold. Ordered a beer which never arrived so after 20 minutes ordered again which took ages. The same with the bill, so after 15 minutes had to ask again. Have eaten here before and felt it was much better. Not a disaster but plenty of room for improvement.

Good food but the spring rolls were very oily. They also forgot to bring out the birthday dessert and i ended up having to ask 4 times. The surprise was ruined in the end. Very disappointed as I've been a few times and this hasn't happened before

I like Patara. Been there twice now albeit several months apart. Which is a good statement because this means consistency of food, service etc. I loved the beef in coconut as one of the main courses. You should definitely go for that.

Enjoyed a good meal here - our table had the veg and non-veg banquet, both of which went down well with their Viognier from Languedoc-Roussillon. An added bonus was that, although the booking indicated that our slot on Saturday night was for only two hours, we were left undisturbed for as long as we wanted (nearly 3.5 hours).
